About Photosensitive Seizures
A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed
to certain visual images, including flashing lights or patterns that may
appear in video games. Even people who have no history of seizures
or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed condition that can cause these
photosensitive epileptic seizures while watching video games.
These seizures may have a variety of symptoms, including lightheadedness,
altered vision, eye or face twitching, jerking or shaking of arms or legs,
disorientation, confusion, or momentary loss of awareness. Seizures may
also cause loss of consciousness or convulsions that can lead to injury
from falling down or striking nearby objects.
Immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any of
these symptoms. Parents should watch for or ask their children about the
above symptoms-children and teenagers are more likely than adults to
experience these seizures.
The risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures may be reduced by sitting
farther from the television screen, using a smaller television screen, playing
in a well-lit room, and not playing when you are drowsy or fatigued.
If you or any of your relatives have a history of seizures or epilepsy, consult
a doctor before playing.
Other Important Health and Safety Information The Xbox Instruction
Manual contains important health and safety information that you should
read and understand before using this software.
Avoid Damage to Your Television
Do not use with certain televisions. Some televisions, especially
front- or rear-projection types, can be damaged if any video games,
including Xbox games, are played on them. Static images presented during
the normal course of game play may "burn in" to the screen, causing a
permanent shadow of the static image to appear at all times, even when
video games are not being played. Similar damage may occur from static
images created when placing a video game on hold or pause. Consult your
television owner's manual to determine if video games can be played safely
on your set. If you are unable to find this information in the owner's manual,
contact your television dealer or the manufacturer to determine if video
games can be played safely on your set.

lurk around every corner.
Only the cunning will survive. Use your strength to
overpower enemies. Use your ability to see through
darkness to save you. You are Richard B. Riddick,

NAVIGATING THE ENVIRONMENT
If you ever need a reminder about what
you should be doing or what your current
goal is, press the <■> button to access
your Journal. Your Journal will list your
current goal and help point you ir M
right direction if you need a nudg
can regain health boxes by
ng a NanoMed Machine. To use
one, approach it and press the ©
button. A NanoMed Machine will
only replenish four health boxes.
This is indicated by the four bright green diamonds on the machine's display,
which will disappear as you take health from the machine. If a NanoMed
Machine is empty, you'll need to recharge it by using a NanoMed Cartridge.
You can jump by pressing the
© button. Jumping will allow
you to move past obstacles and
sometimes leap across gaps to
get to areas you need to explore.
You can climb crates by approaching
them and pressing the © button. Then
you must use the left thumbstick to
climb up or down the crate.
SHIMMYING ACROSS LEDGES
You can shimmy across some ledges to new areas. To
do this, approach the ledge and press the © button.
Then use the left thumbstick to move left or right.
Climb up or down from the ledge by pushing up on
the left thumbstick to climb. Press the © button to
let go and drop.
USING HANGRAILS j
Hangrails are pieces of overhead scaffolding that
Riddick can move across. To do this, look up at the
Hangrail and press the © button to grab it. You can
then use the left thumbstick to move back and forth
along the Hangrail. To let go of the Haingrail, use
the © button again.
STRICTED ACCESS DO
oors are locked and will require special ac
codes in order to open them. These access codes
can sometimes be found on guards. If you're having
trouble getting through a Restricted Access Door, try
"borrowing" the codes from someone in the area.
Riddick can use vents to sneak through areas undetected. Most vents are
sealed and will require a Vent Tool to access them. Once you have a Vent Tool,
simply approach a Vent and press the © button to access it.
HATCHES AND GRATINGS
Some hatches and gratings can be kicked in to allow access to new areas.
Keep your eyes open and experiment with them.
INTERACTING WITH WORLD ITEMS
There are items in the world that you can interact
with at times to accomplish certain goals. Gas Valves,
Mechanical Valves, and Computers are just a few
examples of these kinds of world items. To interact
with a world item, simply approach it and press the

"*p from prison.
Equipping/Switching Weapons - Equip or switch weapons by
pressing the © button.
Fire Weapon - Fire your weapon by pressing the right trigger.
Reload - Reload your weapon by pressing the © button.
Heading into a fight with your guns blazing may not always be the best
approach. Sometimes a little stealth is more effective, and sometimes it's
just more fun to hunt your enemies.
You can sneak by pressing the left thumbstick button to enter Sneak Mode.
While you are crouched and in Sneak Mode, your vision will shift so you can
see more of your surroundings, and it will turn blue when you are completely
hidden and undetectable. Sneak Mode also allows you to move without being
If you need to keep things quiet, you can sneak up behind an enemy and
break his neck in a way that won't alert others. Simply walk up behind your
victim and press the left trigger; Riddick will grab his opponent's neck. Then,
hit the © button repeatedly to overcome his struggling and snap his neck.
ADVENTURE AND EXPLORATION
Your fists will bring you many victories. To fight inmates or guards, use the
right trigger to Punch and the left trigger to Block. You can throw different
types of punches by using the left thumbstick and moving back, forward, left,
or right as you punch.
You can string together combos by throwing different types of punches
rapid succession. For example try throwing a right punch (right on the t
stick + right trigger) and then immediately throwing a left punch (left on the
thumbstick + right trigger). Notice that the left punch is faster in a combo
than it is by itself. Combos are important— more advanced fighters will block
simple punches more easily as you get deeper into the prison.
THE LOUD NECKBREAK
If you'd rather just snuff someone out quickly, go into Sneak Mode and quietly
get behind them. When your hands are raised to execute the attack, press the
right trigger and you'll perform a quick, deadly neckbreak. Be careful though,
this approach is loud and you might alert others nearby.
When you're fighting an enemy
with your fists, you can sometimes
use lethal moves to disable your
opponent. While holding down the
left trigger and blocking, your hands
will sometimes raise — as if ready
to grab hold of your enemy. At that
precise moment, use the right
trigger to activate your lethal move.
You'll grab your opponent and execute a vicious attack. This is useful against
enemies who are empty handed, equipped with a gun, or using a prison
weapon like a club. And it's especially gruesome when you've got a prison
weapon of your own. Try it with a shiv and show no mercy!
There are many inmates and guards
in the prison that you can interact
with. To do so, approach a charac-
ter until his name is displayed, then
press the © button. You can get
missions from different people that
will help you gather items. You can
also trade UD Money for items that
some inmates are selling. Take
some time to explore and interact-
there are hidden surprises for thos
who get to know their surroundings.
Several weapons you can collect throughout the game will help you to
make your escape.
A simple, single-fire weapon, the gun is reliable,
but not very powerful.
This gun will stun your opponents with a powerful
jolt of electricity. But take care of your business
quickly — they'll wake up after awhile.
This weapon is extremely powerful and devastating
at close range, but ineffective at a distance.
Good up close or from a distance, this automatic rifle
enables you to fire rounds rapidly and accurately.
There are lots of useful items that you'll want to collect to help you escape.
f our time, UD Money can be
pons or smokes.

These explosive grenades are effective at clearing out
rooms, making it safe for you to enter.
Useful in first person fighting, these really pack a punch.
When you need health and a NanoMed Machine is
empty, this cartridge will recharge the station, and
to get health from it.
Also a valuable item, smokes unlock special
features in the game!
These simple weapons are very effective during

explore and get deeper into the prison.
